1)Levi’s “Commuter” Series Spring 2013 Lookbook
Two seasons ago Levi’s first debuted their Commuter series, and thanks to its runaway success they’ve expanded their Spring 2013 offering with the release of this lookbook. Designed with the cyclist in mind, Levi’s staple pieces are injected with technical features like 3M’s Scotchlite reflective material, reinforced pants and fabric designed to reduce odor from sweating. Featuring denim trucker jackets, a T-shirt selection, jeans, cargo pants and pleated shorts, the collection is larger and more appealing than ever. One of the most appealing elements of the offering are the prices, which fall at a small mark-up compared to your standard pair of Levi’s, and well worth the expenditure if you like to spend your time in the saddle. Expect these to start hitting Levi’s retailers in the coming weeks. Happy riding!
2)Saint James for Coach Spring/Summer 2013 Bags
In a very nautical offering, Saint James has brought their sensibility and style to a pair of Coach’s signature pieces for Spring/Summer 2013. Utilizing the Breton stripe, the collection consists of a shoulder duffel and a tote, both featuring the mentioned strip with smart tan leather accents and some pops of red to complete the look. Limited in quantity, the collection will be made available from selected Coach boutiques in the coming months.
3)Baldesssarini Spring/Summer 2013 Campaign
Former chariman of Hugo Boss, Werner Baldessarini has set off on his own to create the high end menswear line “Baldessarini”. The Germany-based brand kicks off its Spring/Summer 2013 campaign with a fantastically casual lookbook featuring pro surfer Chris del Moro. The campaign pairs a beautifully tailored tuxedo with a pair of the brand luxury sneakers, all set with del Moro carving it up on a longboard. It’s a great campaign for a brand we’re really excited to see more from in the future.
